We will meet in the city centre near the M Shed and walk along the harbour and then up through Leigh Woods to reach Ashton Court. Once in Ashton Court, we will find ourselves a good spot to have a picnic tea and wait until it gets dark when we can watch the Balloon Fiesta nightglow. The nightglow usually starts at 21:15-21:30 and finishes with fireworks just after 22:00.
Please bring any food or drink that you would like for the picnic. A picnic blanket or other lightweight seating would be advisable too. There are also food and drink stalls available at the Balloon Fiesta.
Please remember to bring layers to put on once the sun has gone down.
In the event of poor weather, the Balloon Fiesta organisers may cancel the nightglow in which case, we would cancel this walk/social. Please check Facebook/the website for any last minute changes.
Walk distance is 3-4 miles to Ashton Court. The walk leader will return to the city centre on foot after the event but you are free to make your own way home from Ashton Court as appropriate.
Meet: 5:30pm outside the front of the M Shed (harbourside entrance).
Walk leader: Kirstie G, 07967 452060
